ANZ dream deliveries are selected by a panel of judges who take the following into consideration when selecting recipients:
- Information provided: Your application must clearly outline what you, your team, school, club or community’s big netball dream is and explain why you’re a worthy recipient for an ANZ dream delivery. Highlighting exactly why you, your team, school, club or community deserve a dream delivery helps judges assess the merit of your application.
